/// Biography of Marcel Cosson ///

Born in 1878 in Bordeaux. Died in 1956 in Paris.
Marcel Cosson is a French Post-Impressionist painter.
He first exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français in Paris, where he became a member, and received the third medal in 1911. Then he exhibited at the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and at the Salon des Tuileries.
He often dealt with subjects of opera, ballets, the circus. He was a painter of women, of Parisian life, of the world of dance, of the theater. He evokes in his paintings the Parisian life of his time, the society that surrounds him, the characters he frequents in Parisian salons.
His shimmering painting is one of the finest expressions of post-impressionism.
The Documentation Center of the National Museum of Modern Art (Center Georges Pompidou, in Paris) has works on Marcel Cosson.
